Thank You Lady Luck

After leaving L.A. and it's series of unfortunate events, we couldn't help but wonder if the rest of our road trip would be weighed down by misfortune. We headed to Las Vegas next, the place where Lady Luck either turns a cold shoulder to her courters or embraces them with open arms. I am happy to report that Lady Luck willingly took Ray, Mariana, Claire, and I and offered us a symbolic cup of tea - namely Cirque du Soliel's The Beatles LOVE VIP treatment. I contacted Cirque du Soliel on a whim about booking an interview, not really thinking that anything would come of it... so much so that I didn't tell the rest of the team about it. So, imagine my surprise when I received a phone call the NEXT DAY while perusing a thrift store about booking an interview. Cara, Cirque's publicist, set everything up for us and arranged an interview with one of the performers. We were planning to leave the following morning, but agreed that this awesome opportunity was definitely a worthy enough reason for us to stick around. We met up with Cara at the entrance to LOVE, not sure what to expect, but pumped to talk to Alicia. ...and then she took us backstage...
After the interview Cara was nice enough to offer us tickets to the show! We were SO excited and the experience was absolutely wonderful. If you're ever in Las Vegas, please, please, PLEASE make sure that you see this show... it's beautiful.Am I bragging? Maybe a little... but more so just feeling inspired to share this amazing experience with the World Wide Web.
